A formal suit is a special garment that is worn for the sole purpose of elevating appearance and formality. Occasions such as wedding, interview and high profile business settings mandate the use of a suit. With that kind of pressure, it would make sense to put a little more thought into ensuring that your suit provides a decent ROI.
A custom suit is a high-end garment that is tailored for you and the occasion that you are preparing for. It is a garment with specific design elements that are created for your physique. You have complete control starting from the fabric to the design elements and the fit.
It would be hard to argue that custom wouldn’t be a much better product than Off the Rack. However it does usually come with a higher price tag. Directly in dollars as well as an investment in time and energy.
If commissioned with a proper tailor, the results should far exceed the price paid.
At Perfect Attire we commission suits that are a step ahead of custom. For clients who are located in Singapore, we craft full bespoke which means measurements are taken by in house experts along with two fittings (A muslin and a Baste) prior to final delivery.
For international clients we provide advanced MTM (a step shy of bespoke) to ensure a superior fit. This involves sending a muslin garment to first time clients with their chosen design and fit for them to try on and provide feedback. The feedback is used to optimize the pattern and then the actual cloth is cut.
As a bespoke atelier we carry fabrics from many reputed mills such as VBC, Drago, Holland & Sherry, Ariston, Ermenegildo Zegna and more. The prices vary in a range depending on the wool count of the fabric, the weave and the brand. We invite you to check out the prices here.
